As a long time sufferer of chronic back pain from years of martial arts training, I came to Maria after seeing many acupuncturists and massage therapists. Maria is the only one that has been able to successfully heal and manage my condition effectively. Today I have virtually no discomfort and see Maria to manage my symptoms periodically. Maria is a natural and gifted healer and a practitioner with incredible insight and abilities to diagnosis and treat patients with great success. I am lucky to have found such an incredible person.
I highly recommend Maria Margate to anyone seeking a qualified and experienced acupuncturist and massage therapist. I had never tried acupuncture before and was hesitant at first. Maria treated my knee before I competed in the Rio de Janeiro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Cup competition. I truly believe that if it hadn’t been for Maria’s treatments, I wouldn’t have achieved world class status. Maria’s years of experience and understanding of healing comes through as her treatment was very relaxing and therapeutic.
I have been going to Maria for close to ten years now. She has brought me out of serious and dangerous pain many, many times. I am deeply indebted to her for the work she has done on my injuries and medical problems! Maria is very dedicated to her craft, and is always there when I need her (not like some practitioners who are more concerned with their own schedule than if you are in real pain and need help ASAP). She is one of the rare individuals, who truly understands the importance of treating patients like human beings, not like a number. Combining technical skill with compassionate care, she creates a caring and healing environment – she is what we are all looking for – a true healer.
I have been treated by Maria for the past 12 years and will continue to do so for as long as she is in Montclair. As a dentist, I always have neck and shoulder issues and Maria’s method of ashiatsu ensures that I can work pain free. She is a caring and conscientious practitioner and it is difficult to go to anyone else because she is so good. A massage from Maria is a totally relaxing and therapeutic experience. I highly recommend her to all my friends.
